SEHException with Editor.GetPoint

I'm using Editor.GetPoint on AutoCAD 2010 x86 SP2. Sometimes, I've got this exception:


System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException: Un composant externe a levé une exception.

à acedGetPoint(Double* , Char* , Double* )

à Autodesk.AutoCAD.EditorInput.PromptPointOptions.DoIt()

à Autodesk.AutoCAD.EditorInput.Editor.DoPrompt(PromptOptions opt)

à Autodesk.AutoCAD.EditorInput.Editor.GetPoint(PromptPointOptions options)


And I finish with an AutoCAD message: FATAL ERROR : Out of memory - Application terminated (translated from French).


The calling code is like this (called from a loop):


var ed = Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.Editor;

PromptPointOptions ppo = new PromptPointOptions(message);

if (useBasePoint) {

  ppo.BasePoint = basePoint.TransformBy(ed.CurrentUserCoordinateSystem.Inverse());

  ppo.UseBasePoint = true;

  ppo.UseDashedLine = true;


PromptPointResult ppr = ed.GetPoint(ppo);


It happens only on some computers. We are thinking of a bug with the graphics card (NVidia Quadra FX 1700). Does somebody already have this kind of problem?

I’m very sorry, but there are no concrete suggestions I can give you based on the information you have provided. Code problems are very often specific to the context in which the code is running.

I have searched our call tracking and bug report databases and don’t see a report of this as a known problem.


Please would you send us a small sample project to demonstrate the context in which you see this error ?


 I will see if I can reproduce the problem or spot anything that might be causing it.
